Eye protection as well. My step-dad and I were painting our basement walls with a concrete-based paint. It came as a powder that you mixed with water. I got a bit of the powder in my eye, and spent 15 minutes with my eye held open under running water. Not a pleasant experience.
Our air conditioner stopped working for some reason, and when I went out to check the heat exchanger outside, it was turning on and off in regular 5-second intervals (5 seconds on, 5 off, repeat). I killed power to it and checked the external cutoff (to see if it was loose), and then restored power. It started working correctly right away.
A quick Google and it seems our unit has a tendency to have its internal motor controller glitch and start doing what I was seeing. Killing and restoring power resets the controller and fixes the issue (until it glitches again).
It seems the controller glitches most often when it is very wet out, and we just had a ton of rain, flooding a lot of places, which explains the glitch.
What do you get when you cross a joke with a rhetorical question?
The metaphorical solid rear-end expulsions have impacted the metaphorical motorized bladed rotating air movement mechanism.
Do questions with multiple question marks annoy you???
When our A/C inexplicably stops working, it is usually the drain pipe that takes water that forms on the condenser to the outside, that gets clogged. There is some kind of slime that grows in the pipe. Pouring a cup of chlorine bleach into the reservoir that catches the condensed water every couple of months, helps a lot.
Consider yourself lucky if you have a cutoff switch for the drainage. Very recently, I had the drain for my downstairs unit clog completely to the point that I had to dismantle the whole assembly (having 2 90s and a 45) to clear it out. I replaced all of those joints with a piece of clear plastic tubing which eliminated the elbows and allows me to see at a glance if there is a problem. Luckily, I caught it before it made a real mess.
The US of A sold Britain and it's allies all it could and then stepped in at the last minute to claim all the credit as usual. Since the UK, and France, Belgium and The Netherlands have been paying you back in hard currency for decades ever since I think the US can be officially classed as "war profiteers". I understand that the UK paid the last installment just last year ("bail money"?); so how will the US survive now without Europe paying off the war debts (known by some as "usury")? The US was in a pretty poor state economically just before WWII and it was the best thing, economically, that could have happened for it! Especially with US statesmen such as Joseph Kennedy stirring things up against Britain...
OK, I'm not going to get into it any further. I quite like the US and anyway, many countries have things in their past that they would rather not talk about. Germany for example, until recently, was a great place to live.
